Join Mad Swirl this 1st Wednesday of June (aka 06.05.13), at 8:00 sharp, when we will swirl it up madly in the live way that we do every month. Get to the Lounge early, dig upon the musical musings of Swirve and this month's featured poet, Tyler Malone! And stick around to get yourself one of the 17 spots on our list... first come, first on the list! Which means... get there early!
Come one, come all! Mad poets, musicians, actors, singers, circus freaks and Elvis impersonators... come-n-strut-yo-stuff. Come to participate. Come to appreciate. Come to be a part of this collective creative love child we affectionately call Mad Swirl.
AND, as you may or may not know, every 1st Wednesday we get all giddy with the swirlin' madness.COMING SOON:
Mad Swirl was the place to be in this poetic community this past 1st Wednesday! This month we featured poet and writer, Josh Weir. He came equipped with his own props (card table & chairs), his own guitar player (Hector Ramirez), his own posse (Maggie Smith & Teresa Megahan) and his notebook full of madness. He then proceeded to steal the night! If you were there, you know what we mean. If not, well, your snooze you lose.
Then your hosts Johnny O and MH Clay got to callin' all the mad poets, musicians & a few other miscellaneous mad ones in the Lounge to come & strut their mad stuff! A couple never-before-seen faces mingled with the usual mix of mad suspects you expect to see on our 1st Wednesday mad romp. And romp it we did! Mad Swirlin' thanks to ALL the mad ones that came to participate, to appreciate...

HUGE thanks to Gerard Bendiks' and Bernard Wright for keeping the beat til the wee hours of the night. We got taken to another dimension of time and space on the wings of their jazzy madness!
And as always, big THANKS to the patron saint of the loco local mad ones, Kevin, owner of Absinthe Lounge.
And finally we would like to thank ALL of you who freely shared their hand claps, finger-snaps, hoots and howls with all the mad ones who got up on this sacred mad swirlin' mic.
